Facebook Employees – level 1

09-04-2020 07:00

Facebook wants to hire 10,000 workers this year. They are product and engineering workers. Facebook is very lucky. There are few companies hiring new people now.

The situation is very difficult for many US companies. This is because of the coronavirus. People must not stay too close to each other. It slows down the coronavirus.

However, many companies have money problems because of this. These are companies like restaurants or travel agencies. People lose their jobs. Small businesses close down. Bigger companies do not make things.

In March, 10 million people lose their job in the US. Facebook wants to help. Facebook decides to give $100 million to small businesses.

Difficult words: hire (to employ new people), engineering (how you design and build products and machines), close down (to stop the business).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
